I am a self-taught artist who is interested in the biological ramifications of humankinds drive to modify ourselves as well as our environment. Before I started my career as an artist, I was a park ranger and worked in natural resource conservation. I have work included in the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington DC, the Museum of Art and Design in New York, Crystal Bridges Museum in Arkansas, Project Space 176 in London, The Progressive Collection, 21C Museum in Louisville, KY, and the Ripleys Museum of Hollywood, CA, among other institutions.
In addition to my own work I sometimes collaborate with Andy Diaz Hope
, as well as other artists, on projects and installations.
